In the Crosshairs

Our #editorialsaturday piece explores the challenges faced by modern day journalists and the dangers they encounter. We remember Lyra McKee, Martin O’Hagan, Daniel Pearl and many others.

The world has always been a dangerous place for journalists. For the most part this has been due to the fact that journalists often find themselves in conflict zones and at times find themselves running

Planning a trip to Ireland this year? Make it one you'll never forget with a stop at House of Waterford Crystal!

On the guided tour, visitors witness mould making – a technique at Waterford that has remained unchanged throughout the centuries, as the Master Blowers shape the molten crystal flawlessly with the use of wooden moulds and hand tools. The next part of the tour is truly magical, as visitors enter the blowing department where they see glowing balls of crystal transformed into majestic shapes as they are put through the 1300-degree furnace. The Waterford Crystal pieces are then hand marked for precision and accuracy, and they are then cut, sculpted and engraved. Skills have passed from master to apprentice. Fresh ideas have reinvigorated iconic sparkling cuts in contemporary ways.

Best of all, after touring the factory you can take home a little piece of the magic yourselves! Visitors have the chance to experience over 12,000 square feet of crystal heaven in the largest retail and showcase of Waterford Crystal in the world.

This is an experience NOT to be missed, so reserve your trip today!
